How to Remove Duplicate MP3 Files?
Removing duplicate mp3 files from your musical collection can become a complex task, if it has hundreds or even thousands of audio-files.

The audio comparison process is even faster and you'll get the comparison results in seconds.
As soon as your audiogroup is formed, you're welcome to make a comparison within this group or compare it with another group. When mp3 files comparison is finished, Audio Comparer displays the results in the form of a tree. Each nested branch is actually an audio file with a similarity degree within the parent branch file. You may ask the program to recommend you which one of duplicate files should be deleted, judging by music quality, or, if you'd better prefer to rely upon yourself, do this yourself. Having removed duplicate mp3 files, you can mark files and copy or move them all to another place folder, most convenient for you.
